I found this book to be very interesting, but was shocked to see it posted for younger children. I feel that there are many words that a 12 year old would not understand and situations that some younger kids may not be ready for, *spoiler* dissecting people for fun in maniacal ways. I feel the book is more for an age group of 15 and up or a more mature kid. Some things may be scary for younger readers. I think the book has a lot of good twists and turns that one would never expect in a children's book and believe there will be a good squeal. Strongly suggest parents of children under 15 pre-read, due to political, religious views. On another note ,this book is a quick fun read for adults.

This is a fun read and Columbus and Vizzini have written it for special effects in a movie. My only issue is that the Fact that the characters are brother and sisters and will not be able to provide the depth that we saw created by the friendships in the Harry Potter series

This book is so exciting! It really is a "break neck rollercoaster of an adventure!",Discribed by J.K. Rowling. I got really intreagued in the story on page 32. I think you should buy it, it's really worth it!

Full disclosure here: I'm a mom. My daughter picked this book out to read, and I read it first. I'm going to tell her that she probably should NOT read it. Vivisection does not belong in any book, but certainly not in a children's book. The skeletons were a bit over the top too, but at least they were magical, which seems to make things a little less personal and real. But then we find out how they bacame skeletons and it was just too aweful. I would not reccomend this book!

Harry Potter it is not... Really wanted to enjoy this book but found the multiple twists difficult to sift through and my attention waned. Couldn't wait to finish - and not in a good way

I bought this book for my 11 year old son and he thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed it as well. In fact, we both liked it so much that we are eagerly awaiting the release of House of Secrets: Battle of the Beasts.

Enjoyed it, although I feel it is geared more for an older reader (possibly 10-14).

While the premise is interesting and the characters not detestable, over all House of Secrets was just too over the top. It reads like it was specifically written for kids who hate reading and have ADHD- so much action it's manic.  And even if you can suspend belief enough to get into the story there is the completely unrealistic children. Spoiler alert:  What eight year old would get stabbed in the shoulder and  get back up and fight pirates? Which brings me to my main objection to the book, the violence. If you have an older kid who is jaded and  you don't mind them reading about torture, murder, and violence of other types then they may enjoy this read. Otherwise I recommend a pre-read by parents.

This book kept me on my toes. I couldnt put my nook down. It is as good as Warriors by Erin Hunter!

As a Mom and Teacher, I found this book to be very entertaining. I do feel it is more for an older crowd, 12 and up. There are many words and situations that are more for teenagers and young adults, not 8-12 year olds. I have almost missed my stop on the train reading this book.
